Unique voicing process

The premium nature of Furch 2018 Limited Edition guitars is underscored by the fact that the soundboard is tuned using the voicing process, which enhances the guitar's tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, Furch 2018 Limited Edition guitars have a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.

Exceptional finish

Furch 2018 Limited Edition guitars are protected by our proprietary Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish, which has been developed to enhance the guitar's tonal qualities. The finish consists of an ultrathin layer of highly resistant lacquer that provides excellent surface protection and accentuates the structure of the wood at the same time.

Stunning appearance

The stunning appearance of Furch 2018 Limited Edition guitars is underscored by a number of details made of African padauk. This exotic wood is featured in the body, headstock, and fingerboard binding with a white contrasting line, soundboard inlay, and bold ring rosette with black and white contrasting lines.

Furch CNR System Neck Design

A high precision dual-action truss rod maintains neck stability and allows fine adjustments of the neck relief in both directions. The truss rod is installed in a carbon casing filled with silicone to prevent undesirable vibrations and to ensure smooth action.

  1. A fully adjustable dual-action truss rod for highly precise adjustment of the neck bow in both the convex and concave directions.
  2. A highly rigid carbon casing that maintains the neck in the set position over a period much longer than is the case with standard neck joint designs and, at the same time, facilitates a gradual bow in the neck, a factor of essential importance for playability.
  3. A casting made of special alloy located inside the neck heel that ensures a stable position of the neck and its angle vis-à-vis the body.

Unconventional position markers

White pearl side position markers combined with unconventional rectangular fingerboard inlays made from padauk improve fingerboard orientation and enhance the guitar's exclusive appearance.

Excellent machine heads

Furch 2018 Limited Edition guitars have an excellent tuning stability courtesy of Gotoh Gold Patina machine heads with polished ebony buttons and a highly precise 1:21 gear ratio.

High-rigidity Hiscox case

Maximum protection during transport is provided by a high-rigidity Hiscox case with polyurethane insulating foam that shields the instrument from changes in external climatic conditions.
